   ReneDescartes has kibitzed 74 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-14-21 Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1977
ReneDescartes: The key point is 34.Rd2 (the only safe square) 34...Bxa2 35.Nxa2 Rxa4, winning a pawn and creating an outside passed pawn. So Korchnoi sacs the exchange for a pawn as the lesser evil.
   Oct-12-19 V Gashimov vs Korchnoi, 2008 (replies)
ReneDescartes: My God, what a game! I'm exhausted from the tension after just playing through it.
   Jun-25-19 Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858 (replies)
ReneDescartes: "lackluster" applies to something that is worse than ok but not yet fully bad -- and that does not achieve its mediocre effect in an interesting way.
   Jun-11-19 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
ReneDescartes: <@payan> Grischuk played a novelty on move 12. There is no theory here to bang out as Karpov and Kasparov did. This, the worst mistake of Grischuk's life, is no worse than the worst mistake of Petrosian's's life or of Kramnik's. Let's not misconceive what good players ...
   Apr-17-19 Gashimov Memorial (2019) (replies)
ReneDescartes: No, the Riemann Hypothesis could be proved, as far as we know--it just hasn't been. It's like Fermat's Last Theorem was before Wiles. The continuum "hypothesis" is in a stranger case: it can neither be proved nor disproved--*that* has been proved.
   Apr-05-19 Grischuk vs Topalov, 2019 (replies)
ReneDescartes: He's like Kasparov or MVL, but he's 44 and little calculation errors are precisely what get older masters in trouble. Besides, even Kasparov or MVL make calculation errors and very occasional blunders.
   Feb-05-19 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
ReneDescartes: @<Fanques Fair> Of all his rivals, only Carlsen, Caruana, and Kamsky had plus scores against him, and only Karpov and Anand had equal scores. Kramnik has en even score against all the world champions together. These numbers speak for themselves.
   Mar-24-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
ReneDescartes: I think failing to beat Ding was devastating for Caruana. Ding, like Karjakin, is a very strong defender and very strong psychologically.
   Mar-22-18 Kramnik vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
ReneDescartes: Kramnik took fairly sound risks, but lost. Aronian vs. Caruana, on the other hand, was just bizarre--Aronian lost his composure.
   Nov-20-17 M Deutsch vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
ReneDescartes: What a fatuous ass.
